Innovative Sustainable Construction: Together for the Low Energy City with a High Quality of Life
Växjö, Delft & Grenoble are showing how the local economy can thrive when combining local climate protection actions and implementing sustainable energy solutions in the built environment. This leads to a win-win situation!
The Sustainable Energy Systems in Advanced Cities (SESAC) project – running from 2006 to 2011 – illustrates many different innovative energy measures in both new buildings and in renovating existing stock, with energy in districts another key area addressed.
Delft (The Netherlands), Grenoble (France) and Växjö (Sweden) carried out multiple demonstration projects together with local partners. These demonstrate how advanced cities and community stakeholders approach current energy challenges, coming up with effective results - in energy savings, the efficient use of energy through improved technologies, and the use of renewable energy for electricity, heating and cooling.
